    I have also known Walter since the time I was real small. He was a all around fun person to be with. I have learned a lot from Walter and have had the pleasure of hearing a lot of his stories from his military, police department, and fire department experiences. He would stop to help anyone. It didnt matter where you were from. His heart has touched many people.

    Don't worry about what people think; they don't do it very often.

    RIP Chief.

    He was one of my mentors and someone who taught me alot of what I know, including the vast majority of everything I know about the inner workings of all of our rigs as well as one of his pride and joys, the 1934 Ford Diamond T Floodlight. I'll miss you chief.

    RIP Chief. I saw him the other day as he was being taken home, I believe, from Winthrop by MVAC. Very sad.
